The Speakeasies are the perfect band to serve as either a soothing backdrop for an intimate evening with friends (soft acoustic jazz, 30's and 40's swing) or a sultry soundtrack of classic Soul and Blues from the 50's and 60's.

Comprised of some of the top jazz and world musicians in the San Francisco and North California area, The Speakeasies set themselves apart from other bands in their stylistic versatility and ability to adapt to your specific taste, budget, volume and space limitations. In any configuration, ranging in size anywhere from duo to sextet, the band retains its sense of elegance and class that guarantees your event's performance to feel timeless.

We have a very extensive repertoire in multiple genres, but are happy to fulfill any specific song request for your special evening. We can also try to emulate a particular recording that you love, or even accompany one of your party's guests in performing a prepared piece! We specialize in adding a personal touch, customizing each performance to best fit the mood while retaining our vintage look (retro suits, double-bass, vintage microphone).



SAMPLE SONG LIST:

Jazz Standards
Instrumental / Vocal

Save your love for me
I left my heart in SF
When I fall in love
All Blues
My one and only love
Autumn leaves
Softly As in a morning sunrise
Moon river
All the things you are
Night and day
Star dust
Once in a while
The way you look tonight
You stepped out of a dream
That's all
It could happen to you
The nearness of you
Green dolphin street
Stormy weather
Moodies Mood for love

Where to begin with this group??! They are SIMPLY THE BEST!!!!! I could not have been more pleased and more happy to have them. I spent months before the wedding listening to their music online over and over again. To say the least, I was obsessed. So there was a lot of room for them to disappoint since I had put them on such a high pedestal. Turns out that they were even more dreamy, fun and fabulous than I could have anticipated. They read the audience well and kept everyone moving which for a midday wedding could have been tough. My only regret is that I didn't have an evening wedding so that they could have kept us dancing until the wee hours. THE BEST!!!!
